NH attorney says med tech spread hepatitis C as early as 2008
A Portsmouth attorney says he is representing a client who claims he was infected by the hospital worker, currently jailed on charges he allegedly infected patients with hepatitis C, two years earlier than federal prosecutors have alleged. Portsmouth attorney Michael Rainboth said last night that a Baltimore veteran is his newest client, and that the man claims he was infected with hepatitis C by traveling medical technician David Kwiatkowski in Maryland in 2008—a full two years prior to when prosecutors have said Kwiatkowski tested positive for the potentially fatal liver disease in 2010.
